Venge Expert

The Venge Expert’s competition-crushing combo of Tarmac-inspired stiffness and light weight with Shiv-inspired aerodynamics makes this pure race machine truly more bike than aero. Shimano Ultegra components and Roval Rapide 35 aero wheels are ready to race.


  • FACT IS 10r Aero Race Design full-monocoque carbon frame with one-piece carbon OSBB/chainstay, internal cable routing, and tapered head tube assembly is light, stiff, and stealthy
  • Brand new Rapide AL 35 semi-aero carbon wheels are super fast and light-perfect for crits, triathlons, or high mileage training; alloy brake track ensures solid braking in any conditions
  • FSA SL-K Light carbon BB30 crank is stiff and light for excellent power transfer, with 52x36t configuration for efficiency on any terrain
  • Shimano Ultegra 10-speed shifters are lightweight and laser accurate
  • New Body Geometry Romin Evo Comp carbon-reinforced saddle with hollow Cr-Mo rails features contoured profile and turned-down nose for comfort and power in aggressive position
  • UCI-legal, carbon fork with 3:1 airfoil shaping and straight profile for best combination of aerodynamics and stiffness
  • Stiff, light, UCI-legal, bladed carbon seatpost flips between 20mm and 0mm setback; also wide range of vertical adjustability

WHY VENGE?

Flyers off the front. Monster pulls. All-out sprints to the line. Venge riders absolutely live for this stuff—that’s why they demand complete performance: the winning formula of weight, stiffness, and aerodynamics. The Venge’s competition-crushing combo of Tarmac-inspired stiffness and light weight with Shiv-inspired aerodynamics keeps them ahead of the competition.


WHAT:
High-modulus carbon aero frame utilizing our most advanced carbon construction method.

WHY:
Gives the Venge the best Complete Performance package of aerodynamics, stiffness, and light weight.

HOW:
Each tube and junction has been optimised for maximum stiffness and minimum weight, while maintaining aerodynamic advantage. For instance, head tube assembly is extra wide at crown for increased stiffness but remains narrow at the waist and tapers quickly to airfoil shape for weight savings and aero advantage. And, we employed stiffening plies of our highest modulus carbon in strategic areas throughout the front triangle to further increase torsional stiffness.


WHAT:
Slightly cambered, FACT carbon, asymmetrical seatstays.

WHY:
To optimise the crosswind aerodynamics of the seatstays without sacrificing stiffness or headwind performance.

HOW:
Airplane-wing shaped stays are asymmetrically designed with a flat outer surface and a smooth, rounded inner surface to calm crosswind airflow before passing by the wheels. Since cyclists most often face crosswinds (approximately 15% yaw on average), we’ve cambered out slightly the leading edge of the stays. This allows the wind to hit directly on the leading edge of the upwind stay, minimizing air disturbance and wrapping airflow around the stay and smoothly out the back.


WHAT:
Fourth generation, UCI-legal, aero carbon fork with 3:1 shaping and straight profile.

WHY:
To improve stiffness over traditional curved aero forks while remaining ultralight. Provides road bike handling and quickness with aero advantage.

HOW:
Our 3:1 X-Section fork blades present a narrow edge to the wind, and run in a straight line from crown to dropouts optimizing lateral stiffness. An ultra-light carbon layup is employed on the blades and dropouts, which are co-moulded with steel inserts for durability when taking wheels on and off.


WHAT:
UCI-legal, bladed carbon seatpost flips between 20mm and 0mm setback, with a wide range of vertical adjustability.

WHY:
Provides the maximum UCI-legal aerodynamic shape. Plus, unlike seatmast-style posts it provides a wide range of adjustability– without the need for cutting the seatpost–for riders of all sizes and allows riders to optimise their positions depending on event.

HOW:
Seatpost is designed with 10mm setback, which, when combined with angle of the seat tube, becomes either a 20mm total setback or 0mm, depending on which direction it is installed. And, the seat tube has room for the post to slide up or down before it curves in to make room for the wheel.


WHAT:
Full internal cable routing for brake and shifter cables on all frames. Compatible with standard and electronic components.

WHY:
Maintains cleanest lines for optimal aerodynamics, while also keeping grit and grime from affecting shifting and braking performance.

HOW:
Cables are routed from the handlebars through the frame and exit at the top tube, BB, and chainstay.


WHAT:
Strategically designed head tube/steerer assembly that tapers from 1-1/8” at the top to 1-3/8” at the crown, with an integrated, aero spacer.

WHY:
Increases strength and stiffness for greater steering precision, while optimizing airflow from steerer to top tube.

HOW:
The wider base creates a naturally stiffer junction, and the gradual transition of carbon fibre from top to bottom eliminates the potential for weak spots due to sharp angles (carbon is at its best when it keeps a smooth line). The top cap curves gracefully into bevel in top tube for seamless interface, and turns with steerer tube for best aerodynamics even while steering.
